  • 2 cups all purpose flour (260 grams)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar (50 grams)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (I use corn oil)


  • 1/2 cup Nutella (or favourite hazelnut cream) (148 grams)
  • 3 1/2 ounces chocolate (dark, milk or white or combination) chopped (100 grams)


  • 1 tablespoon butter (divided)
  • 2 tablespoons powdered / icing sugar (more or less)



  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the middle and add the vanilla, water and oil. Mix together with a fork until combined. 
  • Move dough to a flat surface and knead a few times to form a smooth dough ball. Cover (with bowl or clean towel) and let rest 15 minutes.
  • Cut the dough in half and form 2x 8 inch (20 cm) circles, one circle spread with the Nutella and sprinkle with the chopped chocolate (or chips). Wet the border with a little water and then place the 2nd circle on top and seal with a fork or wooden fork.
  • Heat half the butter in a 9-10 inch (23-25 cm) frying pan,  place the focaccia in the pan, cover and cook for 7-10 minutes* on low- medium low heat. Remove the focaccia to a clean plate, melt the remain butter and then gently add the uncooked side of the focaccia, again cover and cook for 7-10 minutes. Move to a plate, cool to warm, dust with powdered sugar and serve. Enjoy!

*Check halfway through to make sure it isn't burning. Turn down heat if cooking too quickly.
